Just curious how they have handled the awful cut in Jack Straw.
My first Dead show, and the only home town one. You can't get an unbiased review from me!!

This is your moment Clem. Your time to howl. First Show? Amazing!
I remember a reviewer for a source I can't seem to find here right now said there were about 500 people in attendance. Do you remember the crowd as that small?

Edit: Just read LIAs post, confirming that while one SBD still remains another (the one that had the review I alluded to) has been removed. Odd.

I remember the crowd was small in Century II, though I would not have said that small. The Airplane drew much better a year or so earlier. (Worst turnout I recall in Doodah was King Crimson/Gentle Giant at Henry Leavett Arena - under 300).
That said, what I do not remember was the snow mentioned. I had to look up the weather record for the day, as I don't remember it being cold. The high was apparently only 37!
If there are any other Wichitans still out there, here are a few other fond memories from the time: Squeezer's Palace, Budget Tapes and Records, Dr. Redbirds Medicinal Inn and Kirby's Beer Store (still there!!)
It was not easy being a long hair there, then.

The big jam in jack straw is really short so I assume that's where the cut is. Both songs are seemless though.

The cut, according to LIA, was patched. It sounds normal to me.

Most Jstraw jams during this period were, unfortunately, of short length.
